Anti-Semitism: Full Speech of Matteo Salvini in Rome, January 16

Yesterday, we posted excerpts of Matteo Salvini's speech in Rome on January 16 at a conference on anti-Semitism. Above is the full speech. Translation is by Fousesquawk. Editing by Gates of Vienna and sub-titling by Vlad Tepes.

We have taken the trouble to translate the full speech because it is so important, and Salvini speaks so eloquently. Keep in mind, Salvini is the head of the Lega party and former interior minister. He has been castigated not only in Italy, but all over Europe for his efforts to stem the wave of migrants into Italy. He has been called a racist and many other things. Just as with President Trump, who has inspired Salvini, the charges are unfair. I urge you to take the 11 minutes to listen to the speech. This is a man who is taking the lead on fighting anti-Semitism in Europe at the political level.

Other speakers at this conference on anti-Semitism were the Israeli ambassador to Italy and Dore Gold, president of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.
